Together with the large-scale development of offshore wind projects comes the challenge of intermittency in wind generation. That is why CrossWind will invest in various innovations that can be implemented at full-scale in future wind farms to help balance the electricity network and keep societal costs low.

The hub aims to be powered by wind energy from the Hollandse Kust (noord) offshore wind farm. Shell and Eneco are participating in the tender for the new wind site, estimated to be operational in 2023. With intentions for the hub to be operational in 2023 the production is expected to reach approximately 50,000 – 60,000 kg of Hydrogen per day.

The 759 MW Hollandse Kust Noord wind farm will be located approximately 18.5 kilometres off the Dutch coast near the town of Egmond aan Zee, and will generate an estimated 3.3 TWh per year, enough to supply more than 1 million Dutch households.

Kees-Jan Rameau, Chief Strategic Growth Officer at Eneco said:

"In addition to the energy the wind farm can generate, the park offers many opportunities to (further) develop innovative techniques that can be of added value in accelerating the energy transition. By combining the knowledge and expertise of Shell and Enco, we can make full use of this potential.”
